I think I have finally resolved my build thoughts.
lets go back to the beginning
I bought this YJ back in 1994. It ran but needed some repairs. I put a SYE on the NP231 and installed a 4.5" RE extreme lift. I drove it for about two years. It took a back seat to other things for about the last 9 years. I like the YJ frame as it is beefier and wider than a Cj-7. It has a solid frame and tub but other than that there is nothing about this jeep that interested me. I pulled the drive train and am getting rid of everything other than the NP231 that already has the SYE installed and Double CJ drive shaft. Both are in great condition and could be used for a Cherokee/Comanche build.
A couple of tub pics
My T-18a and Dana 20 out of a 1979 CJ-7
Just seeing what the T-18 A and Dana 20 look like.
I have a rear Dana 44 out of a 1988 Wagoneer and a front Dana 44 out of a 1977 Wagoneer.
Axles and wheels in the frame. The CJ-10 tub is going on the stretch 1979 CJ-7 frame for a cj-10 truck build
All up this point is a kind of parts inventory and mock up to make sure I am heading in the right direction. I have not seen many threads on taking a YJ frame and building a CJ -7 type driveline build so I took a lot of measurements and actually disassembled the long side of both the 1988 wagoner and 1877 wagoner front axles and came to some conclusions. I will post those in the next post.
